Automotive chassis manufacturers tell us everything there is to know about chassis

The chassis in the vehicle is an essential component. Several manufacturers of automotive components - members of Autoparts from Spain - are in charge of producing this car-manufacturing component both inside and mostly outside Spanish borders for a handful of automotive companies.

What is the chassis?

The vehicle has got structural block, a skeleton on which all and every item holds support from. We may say that the chassis - also known as frame - is the rigid structure which carries components such as the engine, the car body or the suspensions

Aside of being used as support, the chassis must meet certain standards so the vehicle parts hold up straight with no excessive and/or damaging stress. In fact, it is the chassis the one made to absorb the efforts and impacts the vehicle experiences while holding every component in their right place.

According to the automotive chassis manufacturers, the features that this component must have are:

  • High endurance, so its features don’t go away with the passing years, otherwise wreckages or breakages might appear.
  • A great rigidity which enables it to hold any stress without deformations
  • And being extremely light to enable the vehicle to be as agile as possible to take the most profit of the engine

What are the different types of chassis according to their manufacturing?

Based on their manufacturing, there are two different types of chassis with their own features

  • Ladder Frame Chassis: it is formed by two longitudinal bars that are unified by transversal crossbars. This chassis is the base to place the car interior and the car body which are independent and are screwed in to the component.
  • Self-supporting chassis: It is the most commonly used today for conventional vehicles. Its main feature can be summed up by the fact that the frame and the car body are completely and indivisibly joined. This union has the purpose to bring structural rigidity to the vehicle and house all its components as well
